I am looking for an affordable conveyancing quote. What are the risks?


Several property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms that unknowing sellers and buyers have not reviewed A quote should list any disbursements.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


The property being purchased is on a brownfield land. Is the topsoil likely to be contaminated by waste minerals like uranium (U)?


Though the dangers are usually minor, some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including radioactive waste.


In 3 months we are intending to be finally moving out of our detached property on the outskirts of Beeston into a larger property in Batley at what stage to instruct a home removal firm?


Best advice is for home movers to put off agreeing the removals until such time as everyone has fixed the move date that customarily occurs once signing of contracts. Often home removals companies add an additional a change of date penalty

Do we need to choose a law firm who works with by our estate agent in Blythe Bridge?


If you instruct a conveyancing solicitor through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to move the conveyancing process along. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Do you have fast solicitors that handle the conveyancing of property auction properties in Beeston?


Yes - All of our property conveyancers frequently handle the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction.

Would you suggest taking precautions to avoid paying for stamp duty?


Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) must be paid for property purchases sold for more than one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We do not advise clients risk any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are expensive and unreliable.
